    I'm trying to figure out the classifications of ship sizes. Mostly cargo ships, but really all kinds. Searching the web, I find that nobody can agree from the sources I pull from. wookiepedia sucks at this.

    what kind of tonnage and cargo capacities are we looking at with light, medium, heavy, heavy+ ships?

    well you could pick up one of the Star Wars RPG books, the 'Starships of the Galaxy' is a handy one that tels yous everything you need to know...this might get sensored by NP, could be considered advertising although that is not my intent...[face_thinking]

    Light could be like a YT-1300 through the Lambda transport class shuttle, perhaps.

    Medium, a range of Galofree (sp) transports like the ones the Rebels used on Hoth.

    Heavy and up are beyond me, though. [face_thinking]

    HT-2200 is a Heavy Transport with 4 cargo bays. I think what you want is one of the d20 guides...I'm pretty sure there is one on ships

    Well an Eclipse-class Star Destroyer is F.E. (******* Enormous) at 20 miles, so anything between a mile and that is 'big'.
    It's a pretty broad range.

    I'd go with Wizards of the Coasts's production of Star Wars RPG books or Lucasbooks's New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels.

    This looks to have some info, here. It's a start anyway.
